Ok so I’ve been lurking around here lately but I have never created an account until today! Yay this is my first post!
Anyways, does anyone else have any experience with this? My fiance informed me that as a suprise he is going to be planning and doing all of the arrangements for our honeymoon. Including airfare, hotel, everything! He said that he will tell me when I need to get a passport and if I would need to get any special shots for being out of the country.
I am completely excited, but I must admit I am somewhat of a control freak! And not know where we are going, when, or where we are staying is killing me! And I still have 10 months to go!

@MsBrewer: I actually recently told my fiancee I WANT him to plan the honeymoon. I just gave him some “criteria” as I am a total control freak as well; warm weather, a beach with a drink in my hand and definatly a place with some privacy, no children in particular. I dont want to be afraid to make out with my husband for all the lurking children’s eyes.
That being said he didn’t want to plan it at first and said we would do it together but I would much rather be suprised. After I explained it to him that I will love whatever he picks he was in agreement, as usually I hate suprises. But really with all the planning and him being overseas. It will make him feel like he can plan something and it will be one less thing I wont have to worry about.
Im sure your “hubby” will do great!

Welcome to Weddingbee! I would freak out too, but would be pretty exciting to have a surprise like that.

MY FH asked if I wanted it to be a surprise and I said no. I’m not really a control freak- as in I don’t really care where we go, I just want to know! And it would really bug me if there were other people that knew and I didn’t. So we’re planning together, but he makes all the arrangements. Perfect for me 🙂

I totally gave my fiance now hubby the full reigns to plan our honeymoon. He’s a capricorn aka planner to the t and does not like surprises but I don’t mind surprises. So he did a very good job. But he’s also a bad secret keeper so he couldn’t it long enough and told me where we’re going.

That sounds AWESOME.
Just think, its one less thing you have to stress over! And good for your FI for showing a “take-charge” attitude about the whole thing. Even though I would hasten to add, he kind of got the fun part of the process didn’t he? 😉 lol.
Here’s to the next months passing by quickly so you can find out what your FI has planned for you two! Yay!

I told my husband that he had to plan the honeymoon. I figured I have so much to do, he could plan the vacation. We did discuss some things before he planned though, so we were on the same page. We both agreed on something beachy and relaxing… that way we wouldn’t be doing something crazy active and tiring right after the wedding. He did a good job planning!

If you trust him & his decisions then it should be fine!

Yea, I really am excited about him planning it, and also feel extremely releived about it being one less thing to worry about.
His brother in law did that for his sister 5 years ago when they got married, and it turned out awesome!
I totally trust his desicions and just like you crystalirene I did give him my criteria! Pretty much the same as you put down. Except I left out the part with no children. I forgot about that! I will tell him that tonight!
Thanks for the support ladies!

My husband took complete control over our honeymoon planning. I was trying to for months…and I felt like I would never be able to just agree on somewhere and decide and I had so much other wedding stuff going on. He was happy to take the project on.
He ended up telling me about a month or so before the wedding. Because I am too much of a planner and I needed to know all things I would need to pack. But he sent me on a treasure hunt around the house with little clues to help me figure it out. Two days after our wedding, we left for Oahu and I was SO glad I let him make all the decisions!

Its great that he wants to handle all the arrangements but there is no way in hell that I would let FI do this for ours. I am way to much of a control freak to hand over the reins. I would literally loose sleep over something like this!
